Painting on silk satin

I got a piece of silk satin (on sale).  I wasn't at all sure how it would work...I didn't expect much.  I like how it is streaky and "uneven".

Silk satin

The dye looks so different wet versus dry.  Some colors actually look richer and darker dry than wet.  These reds looked terrible when they were wet.

I find it difficult to stay in experimentation mode... I keep wanting it to look good, which is counter productive to my experimentation.
